Aviat Aircraft has certified all models of the Husky to fly with an Alaskan Bushwheel tailwheel.
The new installation can be retrofitted to all existing Huskys, while it is standard equipment on the Husky A1-B160, A1-B180 and A1-B200.
Alaskan Bushwheel was chosen over other tailwheel configurations because it is larger, more robust and rugged than other models, according to Aviat officials. It is designed to be operated in remote areas where field conditions are considered primitive. The new tailwheel also provides smoother, safer ground handling, officials said.
